Race for the Cure!

It seems sureal to think about last year's Race for the Cure when Lynn walked the 5K route despite being on her second round of chemotherapy.  I'd like to think that she will walk it again in spirit.

Please consider joining us May 18 to honor her memory by participating in the Race for the Cure.  Some of us will run while others will walk.  Last year, I was able to run and then join up with the walk.  So there will hopefully be an event for everyone.

Few Words

There are not many words left.  I think that we pulled off a wonderful ceremony on a beautiful day to celebrate an extraordinary person.  Thank you to so many of you who traveled the miles and years to say goodbye to my unforgettable wife!

Our plans to say goodbye

In this photo, Jacob is unseen and watching over Lynn.  Now, Lynn is unseen.  But maybe she is watching over us.  I want to thank the many people who are helping us prepare for her services.

Here is the obituary that we are submitting to the Columbus Dispatch:
